Some Samsung customers in South Korea are reporting their Galaxy S8 has a red-tinted screen - but the electronics giant has sought to downplay the issue, saying it can be manually fixed. Although iPhone's are also known for longer battery life, yet once empty, it becomes frustrating to charge them as they lack fast charging. With its infinity display and bezel-less design, the device is compact and has a smooth, continuous surface with no angles and curved on both sides, making it convenient for multi-tasking. There's 64/128GB storage on board along with 256GB expandable microSD card slot. Despite having a lovely looking display, some worldwide users are complaining about the weird 18:5:9 aspect ratio.
Samsung Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED panel, whereas the S8 Plus sports a larger 6.2-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED panel.
The Samsung S8 and S8+ are equipped with an advanced 8MP F1.7 Smart autofocus front camera and 12MP F1.7 Dual Pixel rear camera for the best low-light, zoom and anti-blur photos with enhanced image processing. The analyst has now changed his mind, and he has turned optimistic about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. It gets even worse when it comes to separating the two glass panels - the adhesive that holds them in place is so strong and taking it apart might damage the device. Both devices are also water and dust (IP68)-resistant.
Fans can also join Samsung's Upgrade programme which offers the chance to switch to the new flagship each year. Both the smartphones run on Android 7.0 Nougat with Samsung's own custom UI on top. Let us know in the comment section belwo.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 ended up as a disaster for the company, but it seems the company is still confident to launch the successor of the phablet to cover up for the mess created past year.
